    What products do you use to clean CDs? Currently, I just use Sunlight dish soap and clean hands, however, it is time consuming. Any inexpensive product recommendations?

    I've used Rain-X on my cd's for years. Works great for finger prints & smudges. Just put on a few drops, wipe it in a straight line w/a very soft, lint-free cloth, let it dry and lightly buff off the haze w/same soft, lint-free cloth. You could also try a microfiber cloth as well. Works w/out chemicals. I've used one on a dvd before it worked well.

    I've been using Lenscrafter cleaning fluid and towels. I figured since they're safe for lenses, they should be safe for CDs/DVDs, too.

    Three sprays and wipe in a circular motion. You think I'm nuts, but that "straight line" thing is too time consuming and really shouldn't be an issue unless you're using something really abrasive.

    I use one part Windex to one part distilled water.
    It has worked like a charm for over twelve years and my CD's are in perfect shape (barring any clumsy maneuvers on my part).

    Thank you for the input. I think I will try the Windex/distilled water or the eye glass cleaner route as I have both.
